It occurred to me recently that there's no RIR covering the Moon, or any other
extraterrestrial body. That's going to be a problem soon.
In 2001, ICANN ASO developed a criteria for the establishment of new RIRs.
In 2004-2005, AFRINIC became officially recognized under this criteria.
I think we can qualify under this criteria, too, as long as we can demonstrate
sufficient support from potential member ISPs.
I've set up a website at https://lrin.net/ and mailing lists at:
If you're interested, please subscribe, and if you've got ideas, discuss.
Let's start an RIR for the Moon!
